NEW YORK (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden were unanimous selections to an All-NBA team that could mean big payoffs for Damian Lillard and Kemba Walker.
Both of those guards were voted to one of the three teams announced Thursday, making them eligible for supermax contract extensions from their teams.
Hornets guard Walker was voted to the third All-NBA team and Trail Blazers guard Lillard was voted to the second All-NBA team.
The selection is the fourth All-NBA honors for Lillard.
LeBron James also was voted to the third team, tying the NBA record with his 15th All-NBA selection.
Rounding out the first team were Stephen Curry, Paul George and Nikola Jokic.
